Maine Park, the location of the Wildwood Nature Center, is home to two ponds encompassing approximately two acres. The ponds are home to a variety of wildlife including fish, American toads, bullfrogs, dragonflies, snails, aquatic turtles, a mating pair of the endangered Black Crowned Night Heron, Great Blue Herons, Green Herons, as well as many other animals.
Fishing and Pole Rental
Fishing poles can be checked-out during our visiting hours. To borrow a fishing pole, we ask for a $5 refundable deposit (return the pole and your money is returned) per fishing pole. The Maine Park ponds are home to Largemouth Bass, Bluegill, and Channel Catfish, and the ponds are catch and release. Remember if you are over the age of 16 you need a valid fishing license, and don’t forget your bait.
Fishing is open from dawn to dusk.
